In February 2014, the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities awarded Carleton $225,000 in funding to develop a Certificate in Blended and Online Teaching (CBOT) program as part of its Productivity and Innovation Fund.

With the launch of this program, Carleton became the first Ontario university to offer a dedicated and comprehensive certificate that helps build the skills and confidence needed for educators to develop and teach blended and online courses.

The benefits of the program extend far beyond the Carleton campus to all post-secondary institutions. All of the program materials and modules are available on this website as open educational resources in editable formats so that other institutions can adopt, contextualize and personalize them.


The Certificate in Blended and Online teaching is made up of 11 blended and online modules, which can be completed as a whole or as stand-alone resources. The modules contain facilitator guides for online or face-to-face instruction, PowerPoint slides for face-to-face instruction, videos, handouts and SCORM packages.

The development of the Certificate in Blended and Online Teaching and the accompanying open educational resources wouldn’t have been possible without the collaboration of a number of highly experienced educators and staff as well as the help of our sponsors.
